Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hi, I have been given the full install CD's for Adobe CS3 Premium by a friend. Unfortunately he lost the 24 digit registration number off the CD's some time ago and also never bothered to register the software with Adobe (I have already contacted them and they can't help). Is there any way to activate this software at all? I have heard about crack codes, but know nothing of how they work or if they would even work in this case. Thanks Jonathan


Answers :

Viewing the serial number on an Adobe CS3 installed suite is difficult.

If you go to Help menu , then chose System Info and go down, you have see\015\012the first 20 characters, but not the complete serial.

You cannot even retrieve the serial from a register, as the code is distributed on several registries entries and crypted.

The only known way to get the serial is by de-activating the software and then re-activating it again.
Your serial number will be displayed, but there is always the risk to lose your original installation, and if you did things wrong, you won't have the original key to re-install this over $1000 piece of software.
Here is Adobe's link for a replacement serial number with a proof of purchase. It will require your friend's personal information then he can transfer ownership to you. Be aware that they do prosecute if they are not the original cds. Adobe products are not and never have been shipped as cd-r and the labels are never pasted on.\015\012http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15292&sliceId=1
